Sadly, the voters don’t have much of a choice
THE upcoming general election has been fought along a very acrimonious and negative stand by each of the two main political parties, with each side blaming the other for all that is perceived to be wrong with this country.
But it’s still not very clear what positive steps either Boris Johnson or Jeremy Corbyn are going to put in place which would advance the well being of the various communities who reside in this country – so as to make our society a better place in which to live.
Boris Johnson’s apparent offhand manner in not wishing to look at a mobile phone which shows a four-year-boy sleeping on the floor of a hospital is an example of how he is very susceptible to being seen as a blunderer in some important ways.
It is hard to know what was going through his mind in this scenario. But the fact that he is unable, or unwilling to explain why he behaved as he did, maybe points to the fact that he has a flaw in the caring side of his make-up.
Or it may just be that he is overly concerned with the spin and the gloss that he wishes to put on every aspect of his election campaign, which as we all know is a very bad fault in many if not all of our political leaders.
I myself have voted Conservative by postal vote because I perceive them to be the lesser of two evils. Name and address supplied
